LibriVox recording of Summa Theologica - 03 Pars Prima, The Angels and the Six Days, by Saint Thomas Aquinas. Read by Librivox Volunteers.
The Summa Theologica (or the Summa Theologiae or simply the Summa, written 1265–1274) is the most famous work of Thomas Aquinas (c. 1225–1274) although it was never finished. It was intended as a manual for beginners as a compilation of all of the main theological teachings of that time. It summarizes the reasonings for almost all points of Christian theology in the West, which, before the Protestant Reformation, subsisted solely in the Roman Catholic Church. The Summa's topics follow a cycle: the existence of God, God's creation, Man, Man's purpose, Christ, the Sacraments, and back to God.(Summary adapted from the Wikipedia)
This is part three of six parts of the Pars Prima, consisting of questions regarding the Angels, and the Work of the Six Days.

Finally We Come to a Respectful Reading
During the first nine sections, the questions are read with the same sarcasm (by one reader throughout) that ruined the many previous hours of this work. FINALLY in section ten other Librivox volunteers read the book--and they do it with the respect and sincerity that the book merits.
